Watch the rush-hoursThe walls of Dubrovnik are the most popular tourist destination in the city, so they can be extremely busy! They’re especially popular with visitors from cruise ships which call into the port, and which tend to arrive at the walls around 9 am. Begin your visit between 8 am and 9 am in order to beat the crowds!

Use the less crowded gatesPile Gate is the most popular entrance, and therefore also the busiest area of the wall. For slightly fewer crowds, consider starting at Ploce Gate or St. John’s Fortress.
Dress for the weatherMake sure to dress appropriately for the weather, as the walls aren’t covered and there’s no shade. In summer, make sure to wear a hat and bring sunglasses and sunscreen. You’ll also need shoes suitable for walking and climbing plenty of stairs.
Stay hydratedThere are places along the wall where you can stop for refreshments, including ice cream, but consider bringing plenty of water in summer to avoid dehydration and heat stroke. There are limited bathroom facilities, so bear that in mind before starting your visit.

City wall of Dubrovnik: Historical

History of the fortress on the Adriatic Sea
The first city walls of Dubrovnik were probably built in the 7th century, but the walls that can be seen today were built only from the 14th/15th century, with extensions until the 17th century. They vary in thickness from 1.5 m to 5 m (4.9 ft to 16.4 ft), depending on their location. They are considered one of the most impressive examples of medieval fortifications and have never been breached since their construction - not by the Venetians, not by Napoleon's army, and not by the Yugoslav People's Army with its modern weapons in the 1990s. Not only does the complex make a difference in terms of military history, it is also simply beautiful to look at and offers a fantastic view over the old town and the Mediterranean Sea.

Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik

Many scenes in the series use the walls as a powerful backdrop
The city walls of Dubrovnik served as King's Landing in various seasons of the popular fantasy series. Its popularity gave the city a tourist boom, so that there are now official tours that take guests to the most important film locations: From the Pile Gate to the Lovrijenac Fortress (in the series as Red Keep). Other tours include not only Dubrovnik, but also the island of Lokrum, which was the backdrop for Qarth.

how to get there

The Old Town of Dubrovnik is pedestrianized, but there are buses which connect the different areas of the city. All local buses stop at the Pile bus stop, which is a short walk from the Pile Gate entrance to the walls. Other entrances are available at Ploce Gate, and at St. John’s Fortress.


The city walls are not suitable for wheelchair users or other guests with limited mobility. There are no elevators and many stairs in the complex. Resting benches exist along the walls, but debilitated guests should not necessarily join a guided tour, as the pace up the stairs and stairways could be quite brisk. Strollers are allowed, but it is discouraged to bring them. Guests with very young children should use a baby carrier if possible.
